Winemaking The freshly harvested grapes are delicately pressed then left to ferment at a temperature 
of 26°C. After 5-6 days, the wine is separated from the pomace and the fermentation is then completed
 at lower temperatures to bring out the fruity character of these grapes. The malolactic fermentation to follow.

Ageing The softness and good balance of this wine mean it can already be enjoyed in the summer following the harvest. No particular ageing process is needed.

Tasting notes It has an intense ruby red colour with violet hues. The bouquet ranges from little forest fruits to the fresh fragrance of wild violets and withered roses. This wine has a dense yet caressing and velvety consistency.

Best served Between 16 and 18°C

Perfect pairing Ideal with pasta and rice dishes, or with meat starters.

Storage Keep the bottle horizontal, in a cool 
and ventilated room, protected from direct light and vibrations.
